About Me

I Spend My Day

Collaborating - with clients (marketing, product, etc.), Content Creators, Back End Developers, Contractors, and management.

Interpreting - Designer's visions into workable code including color schemes, page architecture and layout, typography and content integration.

Combining - the work of Back End Developers, breaking design elements into components, and authoring code for each piece, creating working websites.

Testing - websites' looks and functionality in multiple devices (tablets and mobile), browsers and platforms.

Optimizing - analyzing websites for speed, performance, usability and adherence to requirements.

Troubleshooting & Fixing - websites that should be working, that were working and are now, not.

Researching - design trends, coding trends and new technologies to keep websites cutting edge and smart.

Personal Attributes

Concentration - sit in front of a computer most of the day (sometimes nights) coding and problem solving.

Personability - good at interacting with team members, contractors and clients, understanding needs and requests and answering questions.

Creativity - tweaking websites' form and function to be innovative and up to date with trends i.e. what the Designer envisioned within the limits of the tools and technologies.

Detail Orientation - making sure the interdependent components and code play nicely together.

Curiosity - in an ever changing industry like Web development, I am constantly looking at and deconstructing new ideas and trends to understand how they work and how they might improve the existing website.

Personal Interests

I am an avid bookworm - I read almost anything that comes within reach. I also do a bit of short story writing - nothing published yet :). Love animals and the outdoors. All this, of course, if I am not working on a personal challenge project or hard at work with my "real job".

My wife and I maintain a small business Web consultancy over at bulletproofpixels.com.
